I AM CHRISTOPHER LEACH THE ARTIST. I started this blog so that I can share with everyone my vast collection of transport photographs showing a personal and nostalgic view of the industry with images that span some 45 years taking in the U.K and some of Europe. I have no darkroom and so rather than being the perfectionist after tidying them up I upload the images warts and all, and even those that won't scan squarely or are scratched. In a way it adds age and character. You are all free to download these for your personal use but please remember I still own them and you are not just free to use them without prior permission for any knd of publishing. Click on images to enlarge them and if you want to see more leave your comments or visit my website for the mother-site with galleries including those Buses & Girls: PICTUREWORLD

Goodbye Elmdon & Ringway
The firm I drive a transit minibus for doing both a school run and the Airporter Service ceases to trade after Friday and I am being made redundant. This makes me very sad for I have done this job for over three years and I have enjoyed every moment. It also lets me enjoy two of my passions, photographing buses and girls. Here is one of them at least taken last year of No.628 a Travel West Midlands Volvo single-decker with Wright bodywork . This bus was regularly to be seen waiting at Birmingham Airport when I should have been at home having my tea!.
